Subject: Awesome show. Tape is PERFECT!
Tea Leaf Green plays a sensational show for discerning fans. This is a very upbeat refreshing experience. There are so many high points that there is no point in going on about it. You shouldn't be reading this - just go get the show.

Reviewer: GianniMusso - - April 24, 2007
Subject: Wonderful !!!
Wow, this show is wonderful, fantastic, full of energy and electricity from start to finish ... i can't describe it. TLG is one of the best rock'n'roll band in the world, all would have to know it at least once. What can i say...the sound quality is nearly like a soundboard.Thank you LMA for this opportunity to hear this music, i appreciate your job very very much. Keep on rocking!!!
Reviewer: houndog3 - - January 7, 2007
Subject: one of the best tlg recordings on the archive.
this is a Bob Cogswell recording!
If you like this one, also check out his recordings of 10/28/06, 9/29/06 (acoustic), 5/4/06, and 1/20/05 (acoustic show). thank you Bob, you are a taping wizard, and keep spreading the incredible TLG!!!

Just wonderful! Saw these guys for the last set on Friday at Gathering of the Vibes and they rocked!!!

Tea, hit up New England more often!
Reviewer: Makisupa McGee - - April 4, 2006
Subject: Baseball Jam
This show was awesome, and a great sounding recording, too.

This was an incredible setlist. For example, juxtaposing two songs like Death Cake and Pretty Jane is the work of inspired genius.

For personal preference reasons, I have not completely decided between 4 and 5, but rest assured that I still think this show scores high on many aspects. I cant wait to see these guys rock the Fillmore in a few days.

Another great discovery here... Long Live archive.org!

Why are you reading still this? I hope your allready downloading the show... If not get started!

Subject: First Time Listener Here......
Ive only heard good things about these guys, read some reviews on then, then i happen to hear a few songs over this past summer on sirius jam_on, and was very impressed. so this is the first show that im downloading of tlg, ive listened to the first disc and id put them up there with string cheese already. imo, who are one of my favorite bands. if your new to these guys get this show, im in the process of downloading the new years eve show, and i cant wait to listen to that. and it would be nice to see more reviews about the quality of shows on here. rarely will you get a review on how the show actually sounds, which is kinda the whole point of this website, to get shows that sound good!! With that being said, this show sounds amazing. I know personally i like listening to shows with the volume cranked up, so this is definitly a show you can that to. i would highly recommend this show.

First off, great recording. Second, these guys kick ass, nothing but energy.
Reviewer: han_shan - - December 12, 2005
Subject: amazing?
Tea leaf green has the power to rise to the top of the jam band hierarchy. This show proves it. their natural talent, heartfelt lyrics, and relentless energy shows me how much of an influance this band will have in years to come. criminal intent and las vegas are executed perfectally, as with the entire second set. HIGHLY RECCOMENDED you will be addicted
Reviewer: hitmewithit - - August 25, 2005
Subject: Beautiful
an absolutely beautiful show, with a great sound quailty, I'm really loving las vegas, such a great little tune. the whole show is great.

I don't even really know what to say, these guys are without a doubt the best thing that I've heard on the scene in a LONG LONG time. Saw them at B-roo for the first time. I just heard this crowd ERUPTING and walked over their and BOOM, this band is just absolutely rippin and singing great songs. Had to dl some more of their shows and this one might be the best on Archive.

I'm also really like 7/9/04 day and night shows

Man I love this BAND!
Reviewer: deserthead - - August 23, 2005
Subject: unreal...
outstanding show. Really showcases Trevor's talent on the keys as well as his passion singing. I just saw TLG playing at the Gorge before Dave Matthews, and they put their heart into every song. This show really gets moving at Ride Together>Hard Travelin>Ride Together, starts blowing up for a great Baseball Jam, through a full Garden sequence. It gets great in the 2nd set(listen to Panspermic De-evolution!)They finish huge with Sex in the 70's and Freedom. Wow...I think my speakers just exploded again...
Reviewer: rasiani - - August 18, 2005
Subject: too stunned for words right away
First I read a review of 7.7.05 on Jambands and I was impressed by the sincerity of the review so I figured that this must be a band worth checking out as I have seen their name around the scene a bit. Well, I read y'alls reviews and the word would seem to be a 'passionate'. I took the advice and downloaded this show as well as the highly recommended 1.20.05 acoustic show. Well, hol-ee crap -- if this stuff isn't just about some of the best music I have heard in recent years. The best shit I have heard since I found STS9 and String Cheese. I mean these dudes are a seriously high quality quartet of musicians. The lyrical content is just so deep and the melodies so intense. The music just flows so naturually amongst them. There are lots of jambands out there that bring lots to the table musically, but to bring such passionate, poetic lyrics is a real treat. People are right about Phish being a little light lyrically -- but that's fine, no one is gonna take anything away from their awesome contribution -- they made such awesome jams. As for the comparisons, it is true that they are not valid. These guys do their own thing. Sometimes they do sound a bit Phishy, other times they remind me of the Allmans they way they have built their jams, but they truly are original. This is what all good bands do in music -- they borrow from those that impressed them, and then do tribute by using it to make something uniquely their own. I mean Phish sounded, sometimes, like a Zappa/Dead mix until they became a unique, majestic fusion of their own. That is what this band has done, and for that I give them full credit, and tell you that this is one of the best bands that I have heard in recent years, and I have heard a whole bunch of new stuff since the Dead and Phish collapsed the scene and the earth opened up and let loose this whole new cacophany of music. These guys are absolutely hanging ten on the tidal wave. Highly recommended boys, and girls.

Subject: nice
caught tlg again at blue nile a coupe weeks ago, and i gotta say they are fuckin' smoking! This show is the same way...i mean just listen to that second set run...Cherry Red, Earth and Sky, INCANDESCENT, and the De-Evolution. That whole streak is absolutely insane. Can't wait to see them in Colorado then at HSMF!

Subject: PETALUMA SHOW IS TURNING POINT
I have DL'd EVERY TLG show up here..
This show is one of my favs' and might very well be the show where TLG "TURNED THE CORNER" This show just flows...This is the show that I am turning my friends on with, but it is also cool to go back and check out early stuff too..

For the unintiated,,, check out the 1-20-05 Cafe Du Nord show. These guys not only can rip you to shreds but can fill your head with sweet poetry.

And if you can get your hands on any Coffee Bean Brown discs you will be done :)

The first post-dead band that does this..

THANK YOU BOB FOR TAPING THIS SHOW

Reviewer: Iamthewalrus1 - - April 28, 2005
Subject: CHECK THIS OUT!
oh how sceptacle I was because of their name. oh how wrong I was. DL'd this last night and already bought tickets to see them at The Funk Box next friday with hackensaw. I can't even describe them. There's nothing out there to base them upon. How about a mix of Dead/Allman Brothers/Mofro... Very very very amazing sound full of soul and damn I can't even describe it! AHHH DL THIS NOW!
Reviewer: spennyinva - - April 28, 2005
Subject: MY FAVORITE SHOW!
only a month and a half old and already without a doubt this is my favorite show of Tea Leaf Green's on archive. Ok well it's in a tie with the Independant run 4/1 and 4/2 of 2005! but this show is a kicker from start to finish. Much different band from 2004 in my opinion. Already in just 5 short years they've begun to really key in on what makes them sound so damn tealiscious, and now they're just running with it.

Look for them two nights at Haymaker
Bonnaroo
Wakarusa
Late night High Sierra

Come visit us in the forums section, we'd love to have a chat about your new favorite band... :)

Never heard these guys before. First time, and the rip. Like rip it apart like no other band out there right now. Damn can't wait to see these guys live.

Subject: One of my fav shows ever!
Out of all the shows I possess, this one is up there with my top 10. Really really great sound and great show!

Amazing

Great show and an absolute must have for anyones collection. DL THIS NOW!
Reviewer: TLGfan - - April 16, 2005
Subject: Good God!
Lightin up the Mystic!
Independant run in one week.
This show is the fuckin shizz.

But seriously, if you like this show, make it over to 4/1/05 and dl that! It's a hell of a show!
Reviewer: JamFreak12345 - - April 14, 2005
Subject: FUCKING SICK! Ridiculous can't put it into words...
If you've never listened to tlg but always wanted to, hear you go.

The boys blowing up the mystic. Great great show! Every song is played very very very well. Just dl the whole thing.

If you're looking for more TLG favorites I would suggest the following off archive:
7-9-04
8-17-04
8-16-04
2-12-05
2-05-05
9-30-04
9-24-04
4-16-04
3-6-04

Also nugs.net is featuring TLG this month! The show they have from the Knitting factory is amazing. GREAT GREAT GREAT SOUND QUALITY. Really highlights the amazing lyrics of Trevor Gerrod.

If you haven't heard these guys yet, have a listen, I myself didn't give them a chance for a while, and now I feel like a dumbass for missing what I consider the best band on the scene right now.

Also the independant shows 4/1/05 and 4/2/05 are going to be up here in the next few days, and those were fucking amazing!

AHHHH I know I keep going on about these guys but really they are going to be huge when people start listening!
Reviewer: themelon - - April 7, 2005
Subject: Wow!
I'm just getting into TLG, and man, what a great show. I've listened to a bunch and am just blown away every time. I though The Garden (1-3) and Ride Together really stand out. As well as Georgie P which is fantastic. DOWNLOAD THIS SHOW!
Reviewer: Jose Gaspar - - April 7, 2005
Subject: I Agree
I second all the following reviews and would add that it's fantastic to hear Woody Guthrie revived in jam band style. Woody's smilin' down on you, guys.
Reviewer: Nipchee - - April 5, 2005
Subject: Why aren't these guys blowing up???
My good lord! I was walking in SF the other night and saw these guys playing a double bill friday and saturday. Me and my wife had nothing to do and had heard good things about Tea leaf so we headed into the show. I said we heard good things... not amazing things! But how are there not amazing things being said about these guys! They rip! Fucking rip!!! The two shows at the independant on 4/1 and 4/2 were ridiculous, and this one only a few weeks before is in the same vein. DL IT NOW!!!
Reviewer: GDFAN4life - - April 4, 2005
Subject: Where did these guys come from!?!?!
I've been a huge GD fan 4 life as you can tell by the sn, and I've never been able to find a band that combines that flair that GD had and the lyrics to back them. Well, Tea Leaf Green isn't GD. But they're not trying to be so that's good. They're trying to do their own thing, and let me tell you. IT SOUNDS FUCKING AMAZING! These songs are very poigniant, very lyrically driven, and when they jam their guitarist and keyboardist go off! Like I'm talking Trey meets a sultry southern Blues player and a bit of Duane Allman to boot. I hadn't checked these guys out because somebody said they sounded like Phish, but they were wrong. Yes, the way they structure their jams are phishy in a sense, they bring it down low build build build and then hit that orgasmic peak, but it's not in the phish sense, it's in the TLG sense. Very rock and roll. Check this show out, I can't describe it but I'm sure you won't be thinking they sound like phish by the end. You'll be saying, "DAMN THIS BAND IS FUCKING GOOD!" I'm already downloading another show as I write this!
5 stars sound quality
10 stars show!!!
Reviewer: KelloggIII - - April 3, 2005
Subject: AHHHH!!!!!!!
This show is amazing, rips it to shreds, but let me just say that the independant shows are gonna rip archive a new one when they get up here. April 1st in san fran was ridiculous, we're talking one of the sickest shows I've ever seen, and I hear april 2nd was even badder!

Start now,
dl this!!!
Reviewer: chinamansbrother - - March 31, 2005
Subject: Your kids will be talking about this one.
If you want a place to start with this band, here it is. If you know them already, then you've probably started the download by now...
...and if the last gentleman won't go on, I'll be happy to waste some more of your time. Just to let you know that in addition to what was mentioned by sknll, Baseball, EArth & Sky, Georgie P and Las Vegas are all just smokin'.

I don't get why tlg isn't getting the love that some of these other bands are getting. umph is blowing up right now and TLG is getting some love, but not nearly as much as they deserve. Great show for newbs! Check this shit out and tell me they aren't the best band on the scene right now! Seriously DL THIS PLEASE!!!
